Since its opening in August 2016, the Cotai Resurt has been able to generate strong profits and thus making Deustche Bank consider that "better than expected performance could drive modest out period upward revisions and better sentiment around the ramp at the asset."
"We are raising our price target and modestly raising our 3Q17 estimates for WYNN given our belief of better than expected results at Wynn Palace, despite the impact of Typhoon Hato, for which we have modestly lowered our Wynn Peninsula 3Q17 forecast. Overall, our 3Q17 estimates are up and we believe near term Palace performance and upward Consensus revisions for 2018 at the Peninsula will both serve as catalysts for shares. Our price target goes to $161 on our revisions and our shift to 2019 as our base year for valuation. We reaffirm our Buy rating.” The Analysts stated.
